a wondrous world premiere

In September 2018, MY FRIEND WILL received its World Premiere at the 2nd Annual Tribeca TV Festival in New York. The pilot episode screened in a program that included only four other independently produced pilots – plus the amazing company of Law & Order: SVU’s 20th season, Madam Secretary, Shark Tank, and the late great Anthony Bourdain’s final Parts Unknown. After the screening, creator/producer/writer/actor Elijah Guo and director/editor Esteban Uribe participated in a talkback in front of an audience of supporters, producers and network executives. We are so fortunate to have been a part of such a prestigious and exciting festival! The community we were welcomed into was certainly full of warmth, generosity and the spirit of indie TV!


We are seeking production support for our first season! Please reach out via the email button below or ShakesAndTheCity@gmail.com for inquiries, or for a press screener of the pilot / series bible.
